About the author:
Tom Morris (Twitter name: @TomVMorris) is one of the most active public philosophers in the world, which has prepared him well for a wealth of spontaneous pondering on the popular website, Twitter. He is a graduate of the University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill, where he was a Morehead Scholar, and holds a joint Ph.D. in the two disciplines of Philosophy and Religious Studies from Yale University, as well as honorary doctorates and many other awards in recognition of his work.
Tom served as a professor of philosophy at The University of Notre Dame for fifteen years, and is the author of many scintillating academic tomes that are widely respected though seldom read, in addition to such popular books as True Success, If Aristotle Ran General Motors, The Art of Achievement, Philosophy for Dummies, The Stoic Art of Living, and If Harry Potter Ran General Electric. Twisdom is his twentieth book.
Tom's writing and speaking has been covered, praised, or noticed over the years by such diverse news media as CNN, CNBC, NBC, NPR, Newsweek, The New York Times, Fast Company, The New York Times Magazine, USA Today, The Los Angeles Times, The Chicago Tribune, USA Weekly, The Economist, Readers' Digest, ABC.com, Die Zeit, L'Agefi, Voce, SA, German Elle, and other magazines, newspapers, and websites from around the world.
Tom is the first philosopher in history to appear in network TV commercials, where he has served as the national spokesman for Winnie the Pooh, Disney Home Videos. He is also the only thinker ever to engage in early morning philosophy with Regis Philbin on his talk show, and with Matt Lauer on The Today Show, among many other national broadcasts.
He can be seen any time in such unlikely places as The Complete Superman DVD Collection, and on The Chronicles of the Young Indiana Jones Complete DVD Set. Really. He is now also a regular guest on the nationally syndicated morning show, Daytime TV. His segments there are also broadcast online at tweetmetv.com.
Tom is known for bringing the insights of the great thinkers into the drama of everyday life with high energy and good humor. Tweet him @TomVMorris any time.

What happens when a modern philosopher gets on Twitter? Twisdom!
This is the first book of wisdom to arise out of the amazing social media website Twitter. It's a collection of tweets by one of the world's most active and positive public philosophers, Tom Morris, known on Twitter as TomVMorris. It's been called "the first true book of twenty-first century philosophy." It's as deep and practical as it is fun to read, and will set your mind working in new directions.
Topics include courage, patience, love, work, play, and personal possibility. This wide-ranging book also takes on such universal challenges as how to deal with difficulty and anger, the importance of self-confidence in times of change, the ups and downs of our relationships, the challenge of inner peace, and how to find meaning and fulfillment in our lives.
